In my last post, I wrote a comprehensive review of HoneyGain. Today, I’d like to present some bullet points you should follow to maximize HoneyGain earnings.
First of all, these tips below are no secrets – they have been officially presented by HoneyGain in their blog. However, some users tend to miss a look at them. Therefore, I sum up the most important ones below you should consider.
Disable Battery Optimization (for Android Users)
Yes, you heard it. Please turn off the battery optimization in your mobile settings, otherwise, you’ll risk losing a few pennies. But why is that? According to HoneyGain, Android has an integrated Power Management system which turns off apps that haven’t been used for a while to improve the battery’s usage. This means, after a couple of days of not opening the HoneyGain’s app, you won’t get coins anymore. To avoid that, you should follow this guide below.
Disable Battery Power Saving For The Honeygain App

Content Delivery (for Desktop Users)
I can only repeat, enable Content Delivery. It’s the option that brings tons of bucks when it’s enabled. Unlike Network Sharing where you’ll get paid according to your location, you’ll receive a fixed rate of 10 credits per hour which is $0.01 by using Content Delivery! However, you have to take in mind that using Content Delivery mitigates possible risks that you can read here. Nevertheless, Content Delivery is a way to maximize HoneyGain earnings.
Internet Speed and Latency
Concerning your internet speed, you should make sure that you have a stable connection; it is preferred to have at least 1 Mbps if you plan to use Default Network Sharing. Using the Content Delivery requires however at least 10 Mbps since the content such as videos or images goes through your network and this requires a higher network speed. If you face problems having a slow internet connection, check out these bullet points here. On the contrary, the maximum bandwidth the HoneyGain network can accept is 100 Mbps. Anything above doesn’t result in higher earnings for you.
But the key element isn’t having good internet bandwidth. The key element is to have a fast ping time, called latency. It defines the time frame to send information from one point to another. Since HoneyGain researchers do visit a lot of websites for their research, it’s essential to have low latency time. To reach it, it’s important to connect your devices to the router using a LAN connection or put them closer to the WiFI router.
Devices Within A Network
HoneyGain repeats often whenever they can that you should run a maximum of two devices within the same network. That’s the limit prescribed by HoneyGain for a good reason. For HoneyGain it’s important to make use of the residential IP address. These are essential for researching on shopping websites to retrieve prices from different networks. The number of devices doesn’t matter in this case.
Therefore, HoneyGain favours a variety of residential network which means for you to have least devices within the same network (again, maximum 2 devices) and have many devices from different networks (there is no limit you can have). There are people out there who installed HoneyGain on their uncle’s PC or even on 40 mobile phones.
Desktop vs. Mobile Phone
Another important factor is the OS you use. HoneyGain says that Desktop users earn much more than mobile phone users. They justify that Dekstop users have a stable connection as they use a wired connection or Wifi to the router. Therefore, Desktops can mitigate larger volumes of traffic. Lastly, Desktop users can run their device overnight to make the best out of it.
Unlike Desktop, mobile phone users don’t bring many credits. The reasons are as follow: There are many mobile phone users versus a few Desktop users, which make Desktop users more valuable. Moreover, mobile phones aren’t able to deliver consistent traffic due to their unstable connection.
Location and Time
Another underestimated factor is the location and time you keep HoneyGain running. At HoneyGain prevails the rule of supply and demand. This means if many users from the same location, let’s say from the same city, uses HoneyGain, the supply is high towards a low demand. Thus, the users from that city will earn significantly lower. However, if one user from a village uses HoneyGain where demand is available for that village, then his earnings will increase massively.
The same also applies for the time. Usually, you’ll earn during peak times which is daytime much lower since many users are connected to the network. Instead, you should keep running HoneyGain during the night time when many PCs are turned off and so the supply.
Lastly, you should consider using HoneyGain’s referral program. Every time you refer your friends or colleagues waves 10% referral commission for a lifetime to you. On my own, I referred a couple of people to HoneyGain without hard work so far and earning credits passively from them. And, the more people you refer, the more credits you earn and the faster you reach the withdrawal threshold. So, why shouldn’t you try it on your own, too?
